What is a Super Moon?

A Supermoon occurs when the centre of the moon is less than 360,000 kilometers from the centre of the earth. This causes the moon to look about 7% larger and 16% brighter than the average Full Moon.

As photographers, we are naturally curious about all the wonders of the world. So, when there’s a phenomenon like a Super Full Moon, we pack our gear and seize the ‘moon’ment.

A few tips a tricks for photographing the Super Full Moon:

  • You will need a long lens. Anything longer than a 400mm lens will work
  • Play around with your settings (remember to shoot in Manual)
  • ISO: 100-200
  • Aperture: F/5.6 to F/10
  • Shutter Speed: 1/125 – 1/250
  • Be sure to pack your Tripod
  • Remote Trigger
  • Walkstool
